From Cathy Fisher
Head U19 Women’s Alpine Coach

Acadia has shown tremendous improvement in her skiing, both technically and on race day. She worked diligently in preseason camps to learn and master the FIS GS skis. She has taken her intensity up several notches and is constantly training at a higher level. Acadia comes prepared to every training session and maximizes every opportunity to further herself. She has a great season ahead of her.

From Bruce Johnston
U19 Men’s Head Alpine Coach

Nate has been skiing and training well all season.  He has an innate drive and desire to improve and compete.  He was the only Gould athlete new to his age group to finish all four races at Stratton and score FIS points. By the end of the series Nate went from having 990 FIS points in both Slalom and Giant Slalom to having 179 and 161 in each respective discipline. A great performance by Nate!
